When it comes to playing the role of an overbearing couch potato, Kevin James need not sweat. The actor/comedian who plays Doug Heffernan — a blue-collar worker who makes mountains out of mole hills in his average life — on the CBS sitcom The King of Queens, delivers (and we’re not talkin’ packages). There’s humor to his hysterics. Morphing into other dumbfounded characters in the film world (his latest part is in Grown Ups 2, to be released in July), it’s safe to say that when James goes solo for stand-up, he does it with the same exaggerated enthusiasm. As long as he puts his usual melodramatic spin to whatever random shit — jet skis, banks, airports, and greeting cards were past targets — crosses his mind, his upcoming gig at Ovens Auditorium is going to be a hoot. $49.55-$71.15
